Succulents are the perfect garden plant for kids

Time to get the kids outside and in the garden. You know what the perfect plant for them is? Succulents!

Most succulents grow really, really well from cuttings. You can buy one plant from your local nursery for $4 and cut or separate it into several plants to create great textured features around your home and garden.

Not only are they fun to propagate but they're easy to keep and maintain too. The kids will love seeing them grow and it's a great opportunity for you to teach them about plants.

When you take cuttings look for roots that are already sprouting from the growing plant to make the whole processes faster. Cut that stem off and replant it wherever you like! When using leaves to propagate, leave them loose on the top of soil. They will start to drop roots down in a few days to a week. That's when they're ready and start growing a new plant by themselves.
